Ridley Scott said that what drew him back to the Alien franchise was the mysterious “space jockey” from his 1979 sci-fi horror classic. It’s certainly a fascinating figure, and it further added to Prometheus being a bit of a letdown.

It has a remarkable level of detail to the point where you’re really reminded of Giger’s desire to include phallic imagery in everything. The space jockey is looking through a giant dick telescope.
